Collection: Blue Calico

Calico was first added to the Burleigh pattern book in 1968 and has been in production ever since. With every piece of Blue Calico made by hand in the heart of The Potteries, it’s inspired by 19th-century indigo fabric. The rich cobalt blue tones and scrolling blossom design complement both casual family dining and special occasions alike. Layer Calico for a bold look or mix and match with other blues.


Burleigh Blue Calico dinnerware is handcrafted from fine earthenware clay at the renowned Middleport Pottery in Staffordshire. Many pieces are hand-decorated using our distinctive tissue-printing method, whereby painstakingly engraved copper rollers and ink are used to print the pattern onto tissue paper, which is then applied to the ceramics by hand. This allows our artisans to achieve all-over pattern coverage and makes every piece totally unique.
